Okay, I’ve never read the book Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, but I plan to… If the trailer is this good, the book must be phenomenal. We’ve all seen our share of movies who’s stories are told in a trailer go horribly wrong and I’m not going to mention any here, that’s another post all together. This extended trailer for Cloud Atlas doesn’t (IMHO) try to tell the whole story, just show us this is an complex, epic story that’s worth telling. It appears to weave genres together as well, historical drama, Sci-fi, romance… my kinda story telling!! It’s produced, co-written and co-directed by the Wachowskis with Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run).
Official Synopsis: “an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution.”
Check out the trailer, let me know what you think!
